Police won’t reveal cause of Tiger Woods crash over ‘privacy concerns

D

etectives have determined the cause of Tiger Woods‘ car crash last month – but will not release details over “privacy concerns” for the golf star.

The golfing star was left with serious injuries after his car hit a raised median around 7am in Rolling Hills Estates, just outside Los Angeles, on February 23.

The Genesis SUV he was driving crossed through two oncoming lanes and uprooted a tree on a downhill stretch that police said is known for wrecks.

Woods is in Florida recovering after multiple surgeries following the smash.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told a press conference: “A cause has been determined, the investigation has concluded.”

But he said the police need permission from the golfer — who previously named his yacht “Privacy” — to release information about the crash.

“We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel,” Villanueva said. “There’s some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation so we’re going to ask them if they waive the privacy and then we will be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident.”

Mr Woods is from the Los Angeles area and was back home to host his PGA tournament, the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club, which ended two days before the crash.

He was driving an SUV loaned to him by the tournament.

Mr Woods has never gone an entire year without playing, dating back to his first PGA Tour event as a 16-year-old in high school.
